CONCORD, N.H. --A fourth man has been charged with taking part in a
Republican scheme to jam Democrats' get-out-the-vote phone lines on
Election Day 2002.

Shaun Hansen, of Spokane, Wash., headed a former telemarketing company
that placed hundreds of hang-up calls to five phone lines run by
Democrats and one run by the Manchester firefighters union.

Prosecutors say Hansen's Mylo Enterprises of Sandpoint, Idaho, was
hired by Republican operatives to place the calls.

Hansen is accused of violating a federal law that forbids placing
anonymous telephone calls to annoy or harass someone. He has not
entered a plea, but is scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in
Concord on May 9.
